    I just realized that I did not know the Chinese name for "Gunpowder tea", so I looked it up.....it is called 珠茶..... and that translates to zhū chá, which means "Pearl Tea"

    Today at work there are a bevy of people with moderate to severe mental health issues awaiting flights. As someone once told me “crazy people take vacations, too.”

    Going to be a long shift babysitting.

    Oh woe is me.

    Been taking a ceramics class. Very bad at it, but enjoying the mess.

    So, how did "pearl tea" become "gunpowder tea"?

    We have days like that at the courthouse, though many fewer people (and less variety) than you deal with.

    Somehow, some things are fun to be really bad at.

    Good to see you posting more again, Steve. Missed you here.

    Rereading some of my more recent posts and I REALLY need to proof read more carefully and more often. This dang bad eye makes it hard for me to read the computer screen

    My wife tells me she's going into the volcano with National Park Workers for three days to help eradicate invasive plant species.....

    Which leaves me the house all to myself with nobody to yell at me.

    @Buka I give you fair warning so you have time to move like you did when you heard I was coming to Boston. My wife and I will likely be in Hawaii for a visit in either in 2023 or 2024 :D

    The people across the street of my house have candy canes in the back of their truck... I'm not sure if they are planning on putting them out or simply just got them and haven't put them in them away yet. As I typed this I noticed my neighbor has their Christmas decorations out too... theirs is in their backyard in a pile. I'm assuming they are planning on putting them up soon? I almost feel weird for just having my Christmas decorations in the garage still...
